One singer might be a force, but five is a family. It’s impossible to deny: there’s just something about the power of a band, where songs form a bond thicker than blood. Which speaks to so many different corners of the music lover’s heart. That experience is at the core of LANCO – singer and lyricist Brandon Lancaster, Chandler Baldwin (bass guitar), Jared Hampton (keyboards), Tripp Howell (drums) and Eric Steedly (guitar) – and their version of modern country that’s fit for arenas but sounds equally sweet on the jukebox of a local honkytonk. It’s a collective effort from five artists with solid southern roots that rocks and twangs equally, making songs like “Greatest Love Story,” their hit single, resonate like few others: one part classic, one part cutting edge and completely honest.
